Androgenetic alopecia (AGA, Ordinary baldness, male/female pattern baldness) is a progressive, genetically inherited disease that causes hair loss in men and women, with a frequency varying in the middle of 23-87% all over the world, and can have valuable social effects.
In a study involving white men; It was detected in 30% in the 30’s and 50% in the 50’s. For example, in a study conducted on women; It was found to be 12% in the 20s and 30% after the 30s.
In the treatment; Although drugs such as minoxidil, cyproterone acetate and flutamide are used, they are not preferred much today due to both the side effects of the drugs and the fact that the hair continues to fall out when it is stopped.
Hair transplantation is at the forefront as the most active treatment today. In hair transplantation, which is an operation performed by physicians and health teams, which is used more and more frequently in the world, resistant hair follicles in the nape area are collected and transplanted into the area that has caused baldness or thinning of the scalp.
There are 3 basic methods used in hair transplantation.
In the FUT technique, hair follicles are removed along with the skin in a certain width in the nape area. Hair follicles are separated from the removed skin section and sowing is performed with the canal system (channel opening with 1 mm sharp-tipped needles). Due to the fact that the opened channels are wider than the hair follicles, it may cause the hair follicles to change sides after hair transplantation. Transplanting with the root canal technique may not always provide the natural hair appearance. Another valuable disadvantage is the scarring due to the skin cut in the nape area.
In FUE technique; The hair follicles collected one by one from the nape are made by opening 1 mm channels with the canal technique as in the FUT technique. As with the re-FUT technique, natural hair appearance may not be achieved in this technique.
In the IMPLANTER PEN DHI HAIR TRANSPLANTATION technique; The hair follicles collected from the nape area are placed at the tip of a special pen with a hair protection chamber. The tip of the Implanter Pen pen, which is smaller than 1 mm, is inserted into the bald area to be transplanted on the scalp, and the hair follicle in the sheltered chamber is transplanted without any damage while withdrawing. It allows us to get results from hair transplantation with the highest efficiency without causing hair loss. Thanks to Implanter Pen pens; Since there is no trace in the transplantation area and the ability to give direction to the hair root is much higher, hair transplantation is performed in accordance with the natural hairline. Thanks to the Implanter Pen pen tips smaller than 1 mm, bruising and bleeding do not occur and thus it provides a much faster smoothing and return to social life.
